To become a “member” of TAL-KW, one purchases a lecture series ticket. TAL-KW does not have a separate membership fee.
Purchasing a fall or winter lecture series ticket entitles the purchaser to:
Registrations are limited by the seating capacity in the Forbes Room.
Purchasing a guest ticket at the door entitles the purchaser to admission to one lecture and a refreshment. It does not include membership.
The primary purpose of this policy is to ensure the personal safety of our members. With an aging membership it is too onerous for TAL to support and generally be responsible for those attending lectures who would otherwise require the services of a caregiver:
A lecture will be cancelled ONLY if the speaker is unable to attend.
If it is known far enough in advance that a speaker cannot attend, a notice to that effect will appear on the main page of this website. Here’s what a cancellation message would look like:
Wednesday, June 4, 2022 – afternoon session is cancelled
The City of Waterloo provides up-to-date information about the status of facilities on the City website. In the event of an emergency closure, the information is also available on local radio stations including:
An email explaining a cancellation will be sent to anyone in our database who has given us their email. If you haven’t given an email, but wish to be notified of cancellations, use the Contact Us and you will be added to the notification list.
TAL-KW will keep confidential all personal information which may have been provided to it by its members or any other persons and will not disclose such information except to its auditors as requested and to its directors for the purpose of operating its programs.
